VISUAL AND HEARING STANDARDS FOR OFFICERS/ OFFICIALS OF WAPDA
The examination for determining the acuteness of vision includes two tests, one for
distant, the other for near vision. Test types/snellen's test types or the accepted standard letter
presented by various methods as made available from time to time either by a machine, slide
projector or by Roller self rotating etc. will be used to test and record distant vision without
glasses at a distance of six meters or twenty feet whereas the test for near vision will be done by
standard near vision charts such as Jaeage in English or its equivalent in Urdu etc. placed at a
distance ranging between 10 to 15 inches from readers eyes. When recording visual acuity for
distant or near vision the following important points must be enforced:-
a. Accurate distance between the reader and the test type prescribed above.
b. Accurate lighting or illumination must be ensured, both for distant test types as
well as for near test types. The test types must be uniformally illuminated with
light equivalent to not less than 10 candles and not more than 15 candles. The
light should be so arranged that the candidate is not subjected to the dazzling
effect of direct light or glare.
c. Each eye should be examined separately and the other must be covered
completely.

d. Squinting, squeezing of the eye and movements of the up and down or side to
side must not be allowed and eye examined must be widely open.

e. Test types should be rotated and presentation changed frequently so as to


ensure that advantage of memorization of particular chart are nullified.

f. Candidates who wear glasses must first be examined without glasses and then
with glasses and the vision recorded accordingly both for distant as well as for
near vision. The standards of visual acuity 1 to 7 are enumerated in detail below
which will form a standard guide placing an individual in appropriate category.

VISUAL STANDARD - VII
Vision below standard I to VI
Note.- The meaning of word glasses wherever used above is to be interpreted as not covering
"Contact lenses/Glasses"
The following additional points will also be observed:
a. Cases of operated cataract in both eyes who can attain a satisfactory degree of
visual acuity and visual judgement for distance as well as for near should be
placed in categories B or C according to the vision obtainable with corrected
glasses as laid down in the various, visual standards. (Hypermetropia caused
due to Aphakia will be disregarded). Cases of operated cataract and those who
have less than fifty percent of their field of vision can be placed in a lower
category only if their job does not endanger their own physical or visual security
or does not prove an unnecessary risk to others around. Cases of uniocular
Aphakia without any complications and when the other eye has normal unaided
vision (6/6 to 6/9) without cataract are to be placed in category BEE or CEE but
18
in exceptional circumstances may be considered for higher category on the
recommendation of an ophthalmologist.
b. Those individuals who have unequal vision in the two eyes (Anisometropia)
whatever the cause may be, may use contact glass or lens to improve their
vision. Their visual assessment should, however, entirely depend on the visual
efficiency so achieved and their categorization will be done in each individual
case on its own merits.
c. Those individuals who are highly qualified and are required to be taken into
Wapda service in well skilled and technical jobs may be considered for
employment according to the categorization and standards applicable to serving
officers/officials.
d. Assessment of Corneal Opacities. A small corneal opacity which is not
obviously visible, is not centrally located, is non-progressive and does not
interfere significantly with vision may be ignored and such individuals can be
recruited or retained in Category AYE. However, opacities larger in size and
visible to the naked eye lying in and around the central pupil-lary exist thus
interfering with vision, are a bar for acceptance in the service while those who
sustain such opacities while in service may be down categorized according to
their job and the relationship of visual deterioration.
e. Squint and Heterophoria. Obvious squint is a bar to acceptance in service while
latent squint of a moderate degree due to heterophoria is acceptable as category
AYE. Serving individuals who develop squint or are detected to individual may be
down graded.
f. Colour Vision. The examination of colour vision should be carried out in each
case by Ishihars Isochromatic plates or the standard colour perception Lanterns.
Defective colour vision is not a cause for rejection except for Drivers. The result
of colour perception must, however, be noted on the examination form.
g. Diseases of the Eyes. Any morbid condition of the eye lids, addenxa, media or
Fundi which is such that it is likely to interfere in the efficiency of the individual
and also become aggravated by service conditions is a cause for rejection for
intake into the service. For serving employees such morbid pathology would be
dealt with by referring them to a Specialist in Ophthalmology for evaluation,
treatment and categorization as and when necessary.

HEARING STANDARDS
Standard -1 A man can hear a soft whispered voice at a distance of 20 feet with each
ear.
Standard -2 A man standing with his back to the examiner and using both ears hears
whispered or forced whispered voice from 10 feet.

EMPLOYEES.

It has been observed that medical bills furnished by employees are accompanied by
prescription on small chits indicating only name and quantity of the medicines instead of full
detailed prescription on Hospital Pads making them difficult to be scrutinized even by the doctors.

In many cases the medical bills are referred to this Directorate for scrutiny but it become
difficult to give opinion/scrutinized.

All concerned are advised that supporting prescriptions on Hospital Pads bearing O.P.D
number, name, age, sex and disease of the patient and admission to discharge slip (in case of

MEDICAL FACILITIES FOR WAPDA EMPLOYEES

For providing medical facilities to its employees, the Authority has established the following
Hospitals/Dispensaries at various stations all over the country.

Hospitals Dispensaries
100 Beds and above 2 Functional 28
50 Beds 7 Non Functional 21
20 Bed 1
10 Beds 5
_______
Total: 15

2. While considering the proposal for opening of dispensaries at stations where there are
300 or more Wapda employees instead of 500 or more, the Authority, in its meeting held on 7-10-
1989 directed that the present policy of opening Dispensaries at stations where there are 500 or
more Wapda employees should continue and the non functional dispensaries be put to operation
as the first priority. The employment of part time doctors was also considered in the context of
huge expenditure being incurred and various malpractices involved compared with little benefit to
Wapda employees. The subject of administrative, budgetary and technical control of Hospitals
and Dispensaries was also considered.

3. For purposes of better control and streamlining various procedures, the Authority has
decided that:

(i) Dispensaries at stations where there are 500 or more Wapda employees should
be opened in the first instance and made functional on priority basis.
(ii) All Executive Heads will ensure that the expenditure on drugs and dressings
does not exceed the monetary limits prescribed by the Authority from time to
time.
(iii) The employees in BPS- 1-15 posted at stations where there is no Wapda
Hospital/Dispensary are allowed to draw Cash Medical Allowance with restricted
Medical Facilities as per Rules.
(iv) Wapda Officers working at stations where there is no Wapda
Hospital/Dispensary may get themselves registered with the nearby Wapda
Hospital/Dispensary for Medical Facilities. However, in cases of emergency
/acute illness/accidents, an employee may continue getting indoor medical
treatment from a Civil Government Hospital and the expenditure thus incurred
will be reimbursed after verification by the authorized Wapda Medical Attendant
(Officer).
(v) Wapda Hospital/Dispensary when established at a station should be widely
publicized and employees in the relevant locality will be given a period of six
months to opt for Medical Facilities.

40
(vi) Wapda employees in BPS 1-15 posted at stations where there are Wapda
Hospital/Dispensaries will be provided an opportunity to change option from
Cash Medical Allowance to Medical Facilities within three months of the issue of
this Memorandum.
(vii) Services of part time Doctors be dispensed with as soon as Wapda Dispensaries
at stations where the required number of employees is available are established.
At stations where number of employees is less than 500, services of part time
Doctors also be dispensed with. In future, no part time doctors will be engaged.
(viii) The overall administrative control of the Hospital/Dispensaries will continue to
remain with respective local Executive Heads under whose control these medical
units are functioning. Financial, budgetary and accounting functions of these
Hospitals/Dispensaries will be monitored by respective local heads who would
ensure that the expenditure does not exceed the approved budgetary ceilings.
The annual budget of these Hospitals/Dispensaries will, however, be forwarded
to Director General (Medical Services) for scrutiny and arranging budget
allocation as per present procedure. The technical control of the Wapda
Hospitals/Dispensaries will continue to be exercised by Director General (Medical
Services). .

4. The Authority desires that the above decisions should be strictly implemented/followed.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject; STREAMLINING THE WAPDA HEALTH CARE AND PROVISION OF MEDICAL


FACILITIES INCLUDING THOSE WAPDA EMPLOYEES WHO ARE IN RECEIPT
OF CASH MEDICAL ALLOWANCE ETC.

Wapda is effectively looking after the health care of its employees. An extensive network
of Hospitals/Dispensaries has been established through out Pakistan with both indoor as well as
outdoor facilities. However, over a period of time it has been observed with concern by the
Authority that in some cases certain loop holes within the system of healthcare are being
misused. Therefore in supersession of all previous instructions on the subject, the Authority has
decided to take following preventive measures with immediate effect:-

(A) REIMBURSEMENT OF MEDICAL EXPENDITURE INCURRED ON PURCHASE OF


MEDICINES
(i) Medicines shall invariably be provided to the patients by Hospital Authorities
either from Drug Stores maintained by Hospital/Dispensaries or through
approved chemists.

* (ii) Where no Wapda Hospital/Dispensary exists reimbursement of cost of medicines
for the employees in BPS-1 to BPS-11 only shall be restricted to one and half
*2
(1 ) month's pay a financial year (for other employees it shall be one month's
salary in a financial year) upon prescription from a Medical Officer of CMH / Fauji
Foundation Hospital/Civil/Government Hospital or Basic Health Unit.

(iii) Where Wapda Hospital/Dispensary exists, reimbursement of cost of medicines


shall be restricted to HALF month's salary in a financial year only upon the
prescription from a Wapda Medical Officer and verified by the competent
authority.

(iv) The chronic and life saving emergency cases declared as such by Wapda
Medical Board shall however, be exempted from the application of the above
conditions.

(B) TREATMENT OF EMPLOYEES DRAWING CASH MEDICAL ALLOWANCE


Employees (BPS-1 to 15) drawing Cash Medical Allowance shall not be allowed any
indoor/outdoor treatment/investigation/consultation on Wapda expenses except in case of
acute emergency e.g. accident/acute heart attack etc.

(C) PROPER FUNCTIONING OF WAPDA DISPENSARIES


The existing dispensaries established on approved yardstick basis of 500 or more Wapda
employees, shall be made fully functional. Efforts will be made to post Medical
Officers/Para Medical Staff where needed on contract/daily wages basis until ban on
recruitment is lifted. The services of part-time Medical Officers appointed by any
formation, if any, shall stand dispensed with immediate effect.

(D) MEDICAL TREATMENT AT MORE THAN ONE PLACE
(a) No employee shall be allowed to avail medical facility at place other than place of
his posting. On transfer from one station, to another station, medical facility will

transfer is provided and placed on relevant record. For this purpose, the Green
Book maintained by Hospital/Dispensary for each employee shall be transferred
to his new Hospital/Dispensary accordingly.

(b) In case of transfer of an employee, who does not take his family along, the
budget for Green Book of such employee shall be given to the
